I just ordered a half-dozen Rocket Aeroheads brand "Ultimate Steel" broadheads. They're not mechanical like most of Rocket's other offerings, but are said to fly like field points anyway. Has anyone used them or have anything to say about them?
I got a six pack for testing this summer, the 100 gr three blade.
#1 small cutting diam., 7/8 "
#2 the do fly very close to 100 gr field points, my groups with the Rockets averaged about one inch higher than field points at 20 yds, so close that it took a dozen groups or so to even notice the differenc.
#3 Very sharp, you could shave a cats butt with these. ( you hold the cat, I'll do the shaving )
Although the diameter is kinda small, people who have used them on game say the penatration is awsome, and they have a good reputation for quick cleen kills.
They are a pain in the behiund to put togather, the blades are very small, but once togather, they stay togather.
It appears to be a tough/well built head, I think it would hold togather on a shoulder hit.
